IN 1945 The Children's Hospital completed its seventy-sixth year of service. 
Although shortages of personnel caused other hospitals in Boston to curtail 
services, ours were increased. This meant sacrifices on the part of our personnel, 
and the Trustees wish to express their appreciation to all who have worked so 
hard and unselfishly. 

New construction started or authorized was as follows: construction was 
started on three additional floors at the southerly end of the Out-Patient Depart- 
ment. This is now completed. It will give much needed new examining rooms 
and an operating room in the Surgical Out-Patient clinic, new examining rooms 
in the Medical Out-Patient clinic, a research laboratory for Dr. Diamond for his 
work in Hematology and a new and enlarged Nose and Throat Ward. This new 
ward required a complete revamping of the quarters of the Ear, Nose and Throat 
Department and will, when finished, make one department of the hospital 
equipped in full detail with modern facilities. 

A bridge over Shattuck Street connecting The Children's Hospital with the 
Peter Bent Brigham Hospital was completed thereby welding a further link in 
the close association of the two institutions and greatly speeding up the increasing 
flow of foot traffic from one hospital to the other. 

A three-story addition to the Isolation Building was authorized. Plans will 
be completed and construction will be begun as soon as final arrangements for the 
use of the space and facilities have been agreed upon. 

Plans for the new hospital building and the formation of the first Medical 
Center for Children were progressing rapidly. Stone and Webster were engaged 
to draw the plans and Henry M. Pollock, M.D. was engaged as consultant on 
building plans. The draft plans have been practically completed. 

On July 1, 1945, Dr. William E. Ladd retired as Surgeon-in-Chief of The 
Children's Hospital. 

Dr. Ladd became a member of the Staff of The Children's Hospital in 1910. 
He was appointed Surgeon-in-Chief in 1927. In 1940 he was made Professor 
of Child Surgery at the Harvard Medical School, holding the Chair named and 
endowed in his honor. 

Dr. Ladd's professional accomplishments have added immeasurably to the 
prestige of the Hospital. His skill as a surgeon made him nationally and inter- 
nationally famous. His striking personality impressed all those who met him 
and made him a dominating and beloved figure among his associates. 

The Trustees acknowledge their gratitude for his distinguished and unselfish 
service and express their deep regret for the termination of his service as Surgeon- 
in-Chief. Professionally and personally his retirement is an inestimable loss to 
the Hospital. 

As Surgeon-in-Chief Emeritus, his great talents will be of invaluable assist- 
ance to the further progress of the work to which he has already given so much. 

In June, Mr. George v. L. Meyer our Director for twelve years again pressed 
his request to retire and with great regret his resignation was accepted. Dr. 


Pollock was prevailed upon to serve as Acting Director until the appointment of 
a permanent Director. Mr. George S. Lawler, Assistant to the President was 
loaned to the Hospital as Business Administrator for this interim period. 

The Trusees wish to pay tribute to Mr. Meyer on his retirement as Direc- 
tor. Mr. Meyer has been a Trustee since 1915 and served as Secretary from 1915- 
1918; 1923-1933 and as Assistant Treasurer from 1927 to 1932. He has given 
able and devoted service to the Hospital and was in large measure responsible 
for the progress and increase in facilities and resources during his administra- 
tion. He remains a Trustee and his valued services and specialized knowledge 
will still be available. 

The Trustees are happy to report that Charles F. Branch, M.D., who has 
for many years been associated with the Massachusetts Memorial Hospitals, 
the Beverly and the Salem Hospitals, and has been Dean of the Boston University 
School of Medicine has accepted the position of Director of The Children's 
Hospital and will take office on January 1, 1946. We feel extremely fortunate in 
prevailing upon him to give up his career in medicine and as Dean to assume the 
direction of our Hospital. It was the great interest of Dr. Branch in the plans 
for the Medical Center for Children that persuaded him to make the change. 

We now face another year of shortages of space, equipment and personnel, 
of increasing costs and of decreasing return on investments. Nevertheless our 
plans for the Medical Center and for obtaining funds for it are progressing. 
We have full confidence in the need for this development and that it will become 
possible in due course. By the time the next report is written we have full ex- 
pectation that we shall be well along in the actual fulfillment of this great enter- 




THE Report of the Board of Trustees is so complete and informative that the 
Director need add but few words and these chiefly words of appreciation. 

It must be pleasing to your Board to know that the definite forward progress 
of The Children's Hospital which marked each year of Mr. George Meyer's 
capable administration has continued. This progress could not have been made 
had it not been for the loyal and efficient service of the hospital staff and per- 
sonnel. Again, with the limited number of workers available it would have been 
quite impossible to continue and even expand certain departments had it not 
been for the large group of men and women who made up the hospital corps of 
volunteers and whose services made possible the seemingly impossible. Cheerfully 
and skillfully they did, without question, what was given them to do. To these 
workers, the Staff, the personnel and the volunteers both the public and the 
Hospital are under an enduring obligation. The Hospital has sustained serious 
losses through the retirement of Dr. William E. Ladd, Surgeon-in-Chief and Mr. 
George Meyer, Director. Their achievements in their respective fields are a 
matter of record of which we and they may well be proud. The Hospital regrets 
other retirements and resignations, particularly that of Miss Priscilla Hedley 
who for thirty-two years was admitting clerk in the Out-Patient Department. 
Her pleasing manner endeared her to all her associates and the many parents and 
patients she interviewed throughout the years. , 

Acknowledgment of the Hospital's many indebtednesses should include both 
thanks and appreciation for the work of Mr. George Lawler, Assistant to the 
President who, following the retirement of Mr. Meyer and until Dr. Branch took 
office as Director, served so efficiently as Business Administrator. 

A new day is dawning for The Children's Hospital. Its expansion from a 
Children's Hospital to a Children's Medical Center has been visualized and will 
become a reality. Tentative plans for a new hospital building are nearly com- 
pleted and it is hoped and expected that its erection will not be long delayed. 

During my brief time as Director an important task was to assist your Board 
in finding a physician who would become the permanent Director of your Hos- 
pital. Your appointment of Dr. Charles F. Branch to this important position 
may well be regarded as one of the year's successes. 

Also during my time as Director, I came to know that the steadily mounting 
reputation of The Children's Hospital is richly deserved. Under your wise 
guidance and with the unusual skill of the Medical and Surgical Staff, this repu- 
tation must be continuously augmented. 

I count it as one of my major privileges to have been associated for a short 
time with the truly wonderful work of The Children's Hospital of Boston.

Endowed Beds 
BY vote of the Board of Trustees, and until further action by the Board, a 
gift of $25,000 will endow a bed. 

FOLLOWING a recommendation of the Staff, the Trustees decided to remove 
all memorial tablets from the walls of the wards, and place them in the future on 
a panel over the nurses' station of each ward, or elsewhere, and accordingly, it 
was voted that in the future a donor of not less than $1000 has a right to place a 
memorial for a five-year period on the memorial panel.

To the Officers and Board of Trustees 


We have made an examination of the financial accounts and records of 
The Children's Hospital for the year ended December 31, 1945. 

We satisfied ourselves that all recorded cash receipts were deposited in banks, 
and we examined cancelled checks and vouchers in support of the greater part 
of all disbursements. We verified the balances of cash in bank and on hand by 
certificates from the bank and by actual count. 



We inspected the securities held in the general, the restricted, and the new 
building funds on January 3, 1946, and examined documents in support of any 
changes between that date and December 31, 1945. We found that all trans- 
actions during the year pertaining to these investments were properly recorded 
and that collectible income therefrom was accounted for. Securities were gen- 
erally carried at cost, or in the case of bequests, either at market or assigned 
values at the date of acquisition. 

In our opinion, based upon such examination, the accompanying statements 
of assets and liabilities and of income and expense present fairly the financial 
condition of the Hospital at December 31, 1945, and the results of its operations 
for the year then ended, in conformity with generally accepted accounting prin- 
ciples applied on a basis consistent with that of the preceding year.

I HAVE the honor to make the following report from the Medical Service of 
The Children's Hospital for the year 1945. 

The following men who have been on military duty have now returned and 
rejoined the Medical Department: 

Dr. John K. Brines 
Dr. Richard Cannon Eley 
Dr. Albert A. Frank 
Dr. Lewis Webb Hill 
Dr. John P. Hubbard 
Dr. Charles D. May 
Dr. Harry Shwachman 

Dr. Allan M. Hill and Dr. Lendon Snedeker have both been released from 
military duty but have not yet resumed their work at The Children's Hospital. 
Dr. Henry N. Pratt is no longer in the Army but has resigned from The Children's 
Hospital in order to enter the field of hospital administration. 

Dr. Lewis Webb Hill has been appointed to take charge of the Allergy Clinic. 
The work of this clinic was formerly under the direction of Dr. Henry N. Pratt 
and during his absence due to the war it has been conducted by Dr. Lucille Wil- 
liamson. With inadequate personnel, Dr. Williamson has done a very good piece 
of work in a very active clinic. 

Dr. Eley has taken over the supervision of the post-graduate students in the 
Medical Department of The Children's Hospital. 

Dr. May has been appointed in charge of the Medical Out-Patient Depart- 
ment working with Dr. Eliot Hubbard. Dr. May has already made a notable 
improvement in the Medical Out-Patient Department service. During the war 
this branch of the Medical Service operated mostly on its own steam but now I 
believe the work there will be returned to its former higher standards and it 
should serve as an excellent opening for training men in Pediatrics. We have 
already made several extern appointments and expect to make others in the near 

Dr. John P. Hubbard has returned to take charge of the Rheumatic Fever 
Clinic. During his absence this responsibility was ably and conscientiously 
carried by Dr. Louis A. Sieracki at real personal sacrifice. 

Dr. Shwachman's future plans are not definitely determined. For the next 
few months he will work in Dr. Diamond's laboratory and in the Medical Out- 
Patient Department and will complete papers on work which he did while in 
military service. 

The return of many of the men who were formerly on our house staff to 
positions as assistant residents has been of great benefit to the Service as they 
have brought to their responsibilities a maturity and judgment which we have 
missed in the last few years. Considering the small amount of training that the 
men have had who have acted as assistant residents during the war years, the 
change brought about by the many recent appointments has been very striking. 
There is great satisfaction in the thought that in the future we shall be able to 
make our appointments to the house staff without the necessity of obtaining a 
release in each case from the Procurement and Assignment Service. Appoint- 


merits for assistant residents on the Medical Service have been filled up to 
January 1, 1947, and there are many applicants for positions subsequent to that 
date. Our intern appointments have been completed up to July 1, 1947. New 
appointments to begin on that date will be made sometime in July, 1946. 

This year has been an important one on the Isolation Service chiefly because 
of the very large number of poliomyelitis cases cared for during the summer and 
fall in collaboration with the Orthopedic Service. Out of 534 cases in the state 
in 1945, 164 patients with this disease were cared for on our ward during the acute 
phase of the disease. The Nursing Service deserves particular credit for the long 
hours of unselfish service, much of it overtime, which made it possible to go 
through the epidemic period without turning any poliomyelitis cases away de- 
spite greatly reduced personnel. Two new respirators provided by the local 
chapter of the National Foundation have improved our facilities greatly and 
were very valuable in a few cases this summer. The development of this hos- 
pital as a center for the diagnosis, treatment, and study of this important disease 
should be encouraged. 

Although the Department of Infectious Diseases continues to suffer from 
lack of beds and facilities for training house officers, it has continued its collabora- 
tion with school health services wherever it could be useful. Outbreaks of disease 
in three boarding schools have been studied. The admission of a few patients, 
eighteen to nineteen years of age, with communicable diseases from schools and 
colleges, has made a beginning toward adolescent care which we hope may be 

It has been a source of gratification and wonder to me that, in spite of the 
difficulties, so much productive work has gone forward in the last year. It is 
anticipated, now that more adequate personnel can be secured, that there will 
be a considerable increase in the amount of research carried on and undoubtedly 
requests will be made to the Hospital for some financial assistance. 

The investigative work carried on by various members of the Medical De- 
partment is briefly summarized. Dr. Janeway has continued his studies on vari- 
ous fractions of plasma protein with particular emphasis on the use of gamma 
globulin in scarlet fever, measles and infectious hepatitis. Studies attempting 
to develop its safe use in intravenous solution have also been carried on. Experi- 
ments have been set up to establish the fate of injected protein and the develop- 
ment of hypersensitivity. Dr. Berenberg and Dr. Hutchins have collaborated 
in these experiments. Drs. Berenberg and Clifford wrote a chapter on "The 
Newborn" for Grulee's "Text of Pediatrics." 

Dr. Clifford has continued his fine work with the patients of the Infants' 
Hospital, particularly along the lines of establishing better procedures and tech- 
niques for handling the premature infant. 

Dr. Byers has advanced his studies on lead poisoning and is in process of 
establishing a new method for the determination of lead in the urine. He is 
further investigating the effects of whooping cough on small children. 

Dr. Crothers' neurological unit has continued its studies on the emotional 
and intellectual factors involved in recovery from acute poliomyelitis and the 
relation of the implications of such findings to other neurological diseases of 
children. He has been assisted in this work by Dr. Meyer. 

During the year Dr. Lennox has published extensively concerning his work 
in the field of epilepsy and its related psychophysiology. He has been aided in 


this work by Dr. Kozol. It is anticipated that in the coming year the work of 
the seizure clinic will be materially expanded. 

Dr. Davies has maintained the high standards of the bacteriology labora- 
tory in spite of deficiencies of space and personnel. His investigations have been 
largely in the use of the newer antibiotics and the continuation of his studies on 
toxoplasmosis and meningitis. 

Under the guidance of Dr. Gamble there has been sustained progress over 
the year in the research undertakings of the chemistry laboratory. Study of 
various features of disease by the methods of chemistry has been greatly facili- 
tated by the establishment, through the generosity of Mrs. Prouty, of a metabol- 
ism ward. This ward has been equipped with especially designed beds and with 
various other conveniences which contribute to accuracy in carrying out metabol- 
ism studies. A graduate nurse experienced in the special technics required has 
been assigned to this ward. The organization of this new and important service 
has been carried out by Dr. Edward L. Pratt. 

The laboratory staff has suffered a large loss in the recent death of Dr. 
Alfred T. Shohl. Besides being an eminent investigator in the field of nutritional 
disturbances, he was a kindly and generous man who gave freely of his time to 
the guidance of younger members of the research group. 

During the year 1945, the Hematology Laboratory at The Children's Hos- 
pital has continued its studies on blood disease, even though handicapped by 
lack of technicians and Fellows. Two men, both members of the armed forces 
of the Canadian Government, Dr. Sydney Israels, Flight Surgeon, Royal Canad- 
ian Air Forces, and Dr. Ronald Denton, Medical Corps of the Royal Canadian 
Naval Volunteer Reserve, spent six months each studying blood diseases and 
methods of preventing blood transfusion reactions. 

During this year, investigations have continued on leukemia purpura 
hemorrhagica, hemolytic anemias, and hemophilia. In addition, the numerous 
cases of all sorts of blood diseases so commonly referred to the Infants' and 
Children's Hospitals have been cared for and treated on the ward and in the Out- 
Patient Department under our direct supervision. 

I can not close this report without expressing my keen appreciation to the 
Trustees and to the Director for their unfailing co-operation in all matters con- 
cerned with the conduct of the Medical Service. I wish also to express my 
admiration for the way the nursing staff has carried on with inadequate personnel 
but without any relaxation of the standards of service. The nurses' aides and 
volunteers have also been of inestimable assistance.

IN the year 1945 there have been many changes on the Surgical Service reflecting 
in various ways the end of World War II. Dr. Ladd retired as Surgeon-in- Chief 
July 1, 1945, after nineteen years of outstanding service in that position. For- 
tunately, he has been willing to continue with some teaching, with the care of a 
special group of cases of particular interest to him, and with private practice. 
The latter part of the year was marked by the return of several members of the 
staff from active military duty — Drs. Lanman, Hudson, Thorndike, Chamber- 
lain and Campbell. All of these men had made notable contributions to the war 
effort in the Army or Navy and it has been a great pleasure to the rest of the 
staff to welcome them back. 

The house staff has consisted almost entirely of men who have been on the 
accelerated program and have therefore been somewhat less experienced than 
would be the case under normal conditions. In spite of this fact, they have done 
extremely well and deserve great credit. We hope that some of them, at least, 
will be able to return for further experience after their term of military service. 

During the year the Anesthesia Department was taken over by the Surgical 
Service and it is a pleasure to record the highest praise for Miss Lank and her 
associates for their willing co-operation and untiring efforts when congestion and 
reduced personnel made daily difficulties. 

The Surgical Research Laboratory has continued to be active with the 
Office of Scientific Research and Development work dropping off rapidly with 
the end of the war and independent problems of peace-time clinical application 
becoming more prominent. Dr. Cully Cobb has been assigned to the laboratory 
throughout the year as a Research Fellow in Neurosurgery and Dr. Orvar Swen- 
son has been directly in charge of the general surgical laboratory problems. 

An outstanding contribution was made from the clinic during the year when 
there was recognized roentgenographically for the first time during life a vascular 
anomaly causing compression of the traches and oesophagus. This diagnosis 
was verified in the first successful surgical approach to such an anomaly by a 
member of the surgical service. 

The work of the Ear, Nose and Throat Department was carried on as in 
previous years. From August to December the Department was closed for com- 
plete remodeling and the construction of additional ward space in the new out- 
patient extension. 

In this beautifully renovated suite are provided a large waiting room and 
private office space for Dr. Flake and Dr. Ferguson. A new laboratory is ad- 
jacent to the remodeled operating rooms and a small hearing test room has been 
provided. The enlarged operating room, complete with preparation rooms, 
anesthetizing rooms and nurses' station was moved to the old T & A ward and this 
ward was moved to the old ear, nose and throat ward. In the new out-patient 
addition twenty beds will be provided for nose and throat patients. These in- 
clude three completely modernized croup rooms and a small play room. 

Dr.- Carlyle G. Flake, who had been absent from the Department in Service 
abroad for the past four years, returned to active hospital service on September 
1st and has taken over the management of the Department since that time. Dr. 


Herman A. DeWilde continued his appointment as Resident Otolaryngologist 
and will have completed by April, 1946 three years in this capacity. 

The Department still continues to handle an increasing number of foreign 
bodies in the air and food passages. Through the kindness of the Occupational 
Therapy Department and the Volunteers, the display cases of these trophies 
have been renovated and additional space provided. 

The number of cases of poliomyelitis beginning in the middle of July, caused 
us to defer further tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies until early in December. 
The epidemic this year seemed to be more prolonged than usual. This left us 
with a tremendous waiting list, both Private and Ward, which accumulated dur- 
ing the five-month period. This has presented an extremely severe handicap 
with many complications. It is hoped that in the future it will be possible to 
allot more beds for tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy cases during the months 
in which we are able to operate. 

The teaching schedule has remained as previously with the formal lectures 
and informal ward rounds for the third-year students of the Harvard Medical 
School, lectures to the Physio-therapy students at the Harvard Medical School, 
postgraduate nurses at the Boston University School of Education, and the course 
of lectures for the students of the Schools of Nursing of both the Peter Bent 
Brigham Hospital and The Children's Hospital. 

The Orthodontia Clinic renders complete dental service; orthodontia, pros- 
thodontia, exodontia, general dentistry, minor oral surgery, plus speech training. 
Now that World War II is over, the clinic expects to expand its personnel by at 
least two operators with good prospects that more than this number will join 
the clinic within the coming year. 

Service in the Dental Department has been markedly increased by the re- 
sumption of house officer appointments last July. Dr. Maurice Dinnerman, 
upon his return from military service in December, recommenced his studies on 
the histo-pathology of dental disease.

THE Orthopedic Department of the Hospital has had a very busy year in all its 
various divisions. The depleted House Staff became augmented quite rapidly 
after peace was declared, and there was no dearth of applications for appoint- 
ments to fill vacancies. It has been decided to change the setup of house officers 
by appointing assistant residents. There will be a return of the combined House 
and Residence Service with the Orthopedic Department of the Massachusetts 
General Hospital in 1946, thus resuming the training of these men in both adult 
and children's orthopedic conditions. This method furnishes a well-rounded 
program in the education of those who are going to specialize in Orthopedic Surg- 
ery. Related to the training program it should be noted that the recently ex- 
panded clinical and orthopedic teaching facilities at the Peter Bent Brigham are 
co-ordinated with the teaching activities of The Children's Hospital. 

House Officers: This Service was run on a short-handed basis, but in 
spite of this, all the men did their work very well and there was no let down 
in the over-all care of the children. When peace was declared, it became 
possible to secure men from the armed services to fill the gaps so that before 
the year was finished, this Service was going on in a most satisfactory manner. 

Chief Resident: Dr. Robert Ray completed his service in July, 1945 
and was succeeded by Dr. Thomas Gucker. 

Visiting Staff: The Visiting Staff remained unchanged throughout the 
year. It will have its full complement restored in 1946. Some relief was 
obtained by establishing alternate Out-Patient and Operating Services. 

In reviewing the status of orthopedic surgery at this Hospital, it is interest- 
ing to note that the conception and early growth of the specialty was concerned 
with children. Although in recent years there has been a corresponding develop- 
ment of the specialty as it affects the older age groups it still obtains that future 
advances should come from that age group in which growth and development 
occur. Orthopedic surgery in the adult is a reparative technique whereas in 
childhood it is a constructive and corrective phase of preventive medicine. 

The recognition of these facts will materially affect the development of the 
Medical Center for Children and is already reflected in a long waiting list of 
patients for this service. 

Funds have been provided by the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis 
and its local Chapters to assist in teaching and in providing three new floors for 
the Isolation building. This will give us a total of eighty-eight beds for the 
treatment of poliomyelitis. Recognizing the formidable handicap of a twelve- 
year age limit, the Trustees are planning a unit for adolescents in the new building. 

The expansion of facilities for orthopedic research was interrupted by the 
war and it is now anticipated that the addition of physical facilities and per- 
sonnel will reactivate this program. There is a large mass of material at hand for 
productive study. The Frank R. Ober Research Fund is steadily growing and 
soon should provide income sufficient to start certain projects. It is planned to 
add to the service an individual whose particular training is in one of the basic 
sciences closely related to orthopedic surgery, preferably pathology or pathologic 


Research on skeletal growth has been continued under a grant from the 
National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. Clinical studies are in progress on 
the neuromuscular diseases of childhood, joint diseases peculiar to children, con- 
genital anomalies of the skeleton and some diseases of the skeleton of unknown 

Elsewhere appears a report on the division of Physical Therapy. The im- 
portance of this unit in practically every phase of treatment in our Department 
can not be overemphasized. It is very necessary that the high standards of this 
liaison be continued and that a constant flow of trained personnel to the com- 
munity be maintained. Many people from all over the country come here for 
instruction in the nine-month course. 

The coming year will see the end of my long service to the Hospital. I am 
confident that with the coming of the new hospital, there will be a fruition of all 
the plans which I have attempted to inaugurate, and that the valuable work of 
this unique institution which is so well known both here and abroad will be in 
good hands. 

My heartfelt thanks are due to all those who have so ably and loyally assisted 
me through the years. 

Orthopedic Surgeon-in-Chief 


THE year 1945 saw the last of the war years. Beginning in July, the return of 
old members of the staff elsewhere in the Hospital marked the beginning of a 
new era in the Department of Pathology. Plans which had been made far in 
advance for the training of veterans were put into operation. These men repre- 
sented medical surgical and orthopedic branches of pediatrics, as well as pathol- 
ogy. The small number of men and women from American schools with time to 
take training in pathology has made possible the admission of men from foreign 
countries in larger numbers than is normally the case. 

Of the three house officers who began their work July 1, 1945, two came 
from Harvard Medical School, Dr. Benjamin H. Landing and Dr. Robert E. 
Scully, and one, Dr. Betty Ben Geren, from Washington University, St. Louis. 
An unusual number of Graduate Voluntary Assistants were accepted, some for 
special projects. Picked workers in the pathology of early life from other coun- 
tries included doctors from Mexico, China, South Africa, Colombia, and Cuba. 
Dr. Edmundo Rojas of the Institute of Nutrition of Mexico City, was selected by 
the Kellogg Foundation and the Pan-American Sanitary Bureau, for special 
training in Pathology for a two-year period under a Kellogg Foundation Fellow- 
ship. Dr. Julian A. Rubio, formerly resident physician at the City Hospital of 
Havana, is here on a Cuban Government Fellowship. Dr. Felipe Cacho, a fellow 
of the American Academy of Pediatrics spent six months in Pediatric Pathology 
as part of a one year stay at The Children's Hospital. He has returned to the 
Department of Surgery at The Children's Hospital of Mexico City. Dr. Morris 
Medalie, of South Africa, spent six months in this laboratory before joining the 
medical service as an interne. Dr. Luther Longino, who had been in general prac- 
tice in Arkansas, entered the surgical service as an interne after six months in 


Pathology. Dr. John Stewart, recently returned from the Pacific, served for six 
months in Pathology before entering the orthopedic service. Dr. James B. Arey 
finished his year as Junior Visiting Pathologist, October 1st, and left to join the 
faculty of the Tulane University Medical School. Dr. Arey had come from 
Minnesota after considerable training in general Pathology, for the purpose of 
receiving special training in the problems of early life. He did conscientious, 
able work during his tenure. 

Co-operative research with other departments continued as in the past. The 
experimental studies of Dr. Farber on the subject of folic acid deficiency in animals 
were applied to patients with the co-operation of Dr. Diamond and his associates, 
in a study of the effect of folic acid and similar substances in certain anemias of 

A detailed investigation of the nature, importance, and curability by surgical 
means of anomalies of the great vessels has been under way during the past year 
and is nearing completion with the assistance of Dr. Pauline Owyang, a graduate 
voluntary assistant in the Department of Pathology. These studies have been 
carried out in co-operation with the studies of Drs. Gross and Ware of the surgical 
service, and Dr. Neuhauser of the Department of Roentgenology. 

The experimental studies carried out in the Department of Pathology during 
1945, including those of Dr. Wolbach, will be summarized in the Report for 1946 
since they are projects of long duration. Included also in next year's report will 
be a list of publications and lectures given by members of the department. 

During 1945 the Department of Pathology took part in the formulation of 
plans for the New Medical Center for Children. The pattern of the development 
of the Pathology Department will be extended and will serve as a model for the 
other laboratory divisions which are to form part of the new laboratory arrange- 
ment in the division of laboratories of the new center. 

During 1945 Dr. Farber took part in post-graduate teaching activity in a 
number of places outside of the Harvard Medical School and The Children's 
Hospital. In May he spent two and one-half weeks in Mexico City giving lectures 
at the new Children's Hospital of Mexico, and in consultation in the Department 
of Pathology in that Hospital. The Chief Pathologist there, Dr. Maximiliano 
Salas, received his training in our laboratory. 

In addition to active participation in the second year course in Pathology 
at Harvard Medical School, the Department of Pathology at The Children's 
Hospital holds two formal, and a number of informal teaching sessions in Pathol- 
ogy. The weekly Clinico-Pathological Conference continues, as for the past 
twenty years, and the Monday afternoon autopsy conference for internes and 
residents of all services of the Hospital appears to be a well established exercise. 
Fourth year students and graduate students in pediatrics are admitted to this 
weekly pathological review. In addition, informal projection of microscopic 
preparations of both surgical and autopsy material are held. 

With the facilities of the Department of Pathology taxed to the utmost in a 
program of research, teaching of under-graduate and the post-graduate interested 
in Pediatric Pathology and conduct of routine carried out on the highest level 
possible, the Department of Pathology looks back on 1945 as a year of real progress 
in the fulfillment of its obligations as a center of pediatric pathology.

DURING the year 1945, Dr. Merrill C. Sosman and Dr. Albert D. Ferguson 
remained as consultants. Dr. Jasper Ross served as resident from January 1 
to June 30, 1945 and Dr. Martin Wittenborg from July 1 to December 31, 1945. 

In the past year there has been a slight increase in the number of roentgen 
examinations made, but at the same time because of the severe film shortage 
during the first half of the year there was a moderate diminution in the number 
of films exposed. The department continues to operate at peak capacity. 

There have been no major changes in the equipment of the department ex- 
cept for the addition in January of a fifty kilovolt contact therapy machine 
purchased expressly for the purpose of treating cutaneous lesions such as he- 
mangiomas, warts and keloids. The value of this machine is reflected in the 
approximately sixty per cent increase in the number of patients treated by X- 
radiation. An electric film dryer was also purchased and this has contributed 
considerably to the rapid processing of films as the former method of drying in 
the open with fans was decidedly antiquated. 

The most immediate equipment need of the department is a cystoscopy table 
with high speed diagnostic equipment. The purchase of such equipment has been 
approved by the Board of Trustees and is at the moment on order with the General 
Electric Corporation. 

The first year of the combined rotating plan of training in radiology with 
the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, the New England Deaconess Hospital, The 
Boston Lying-in and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is working out 
with considerable success and appears to be both a benefit to the department and 
to the young physicians obtaining their training in radiology in Boston. The 
combined rotating plan of training also brings closer affiliation with the partici- 
pating hospitals. 

The most pressing problems to be solved in the future are those that have 
been with us for some years, mainly, inadequate storage space, an antiquated 
and difficult filing system, lack of personnel and overcrowded and cramped quar- 
ters in the department itself. It is probable that none of these problems can be 
solved with complete satisfaction until a new building to house the X-ray De- 
partment has been built. 

It has been thought that the purchase of a fluoroscope to be installed in the 
Medical Out-Patient Department would somewhat relieve the burden of diag- 
nostic examinations requested of the X-ray Department. I do not believe that 
this is likely, but the department stands in favor of the purchase of a fluoroscope 
for the Out-Patient Department as an aid in the training and teaching of the 
residents, medical students and staff. The Visiting Staff of The Children's 
Hospital has recommended the purchase of such equipment.

THE problems of carrying on physical therapy in a children's hospital, are quite 
different from those in a general hospital, especially when beds are provided for 
the care of infantile paralysis cases in the acute and early convalescent stages. 

The difficulties were many in 1945, due to a shortage of workers to care for 
an increased number of early polio cases, insufficient working space, and intervals 
without the usual group of student assistants. There was also difficulty in keep- 
ing up the additional case records required, without a secretary. The physio- 
therapists worked long hours under strain in an effort to keep up with the demand. 

The technique of muscle re-education is time consuming. It should be car- 
ried out under conditions which will not distract the child's attention since his 
co-operation is essential to the proper use of his muscles. It requires space for a 
wide table for many of his exercises, and room for him to practice correct habits 
of walking before his discharge home. In a set-up such as this where student 


physiotherapists are being trained, careful supervision must be provided by ex- 
perienced workers at all times. In addition, the testing of muscle power can be 
done only by experienced workers. Two periods of treatment a day are frequently 
prescribed by the orthopedic surgeon, one of which may be in the pool. There, 
additional personnel and time are needed for transportation and dressing. Dur- 
ing the year it was impossible to obtain an attendant and volunteers were too 
few. Nevertheless 102 students gave 2,230 underwater treatments. Time con- 
suming also, but very important, were the instruction periods given the mothers 
in how exercises should be carried on at home after the child's discharge. 

This past year starting in July and continuing into December, 157 cases of 
acute polio were treated on the Isolation Ward. 

At the peak of the load, eighty treatments were given to ward cases in one 
day, in addition to those given in the out-patient clinics which are held daily. 

Acutally polio cases on the wards, including post-operatives, were out- 
numbered by other cases during the year. On the Neuro-Surgical wards, muscle 
examinations were made on many cases with meningoceles and tumors, and exer- 
cises were given in the post-operative stages. A variety of cases including burns 
and fractures, were given different types of treatments on the Surgical wards. 
The largest number of cases were Orthopedic. 

Physical therapy procedures were available to patients on all the wards, 
and in the out-patient clinics on all the services, carried on under the direction 
of the physician requesting the treatment. In the out-patient, the patients regis- 
tered in their usual clinics, then reported to Bader building for physical therapy 
without additional fee. Whirlpool bath, ultra-violet light, galvanic and faradic 
stimulation, heat, massage and therapeutic exercises are available for out-patient 

The clinic for Scoliosis and Faulty Posture cases was held three times a 
week under the direction of Dr. John G. Kuhns. Cases were referred from the 
other clinics and from the schools. Plaster jackets were made in the clinics, and 
instruction was given in exercises to be carried on at home by the patients. 
Seventy-three of the 326 cases in the clinic had a diagnosis of structural scoliosis. 
The clinic was closed in August, and it was necessary to limit appointments dur- 
ing two other months when student assistance was not available. The Bouve- 
Boston School sent its students for experience during its school year, as in the 

The sixth and last Emergency course for physical therapy students who 
would finish their training in Army hospitals, was concluded in March. The serv- 
ice records of the physical therapy officers who were trained here are most im- 
pressive. It is a matter of some pride to the members of this department, who 
were classified as "Essentential for training purposes," that our graduates served 
in rehabilitation centers and naval hospitals in this country, and overseas they 
went to many countries, even in front line hospitals, in Belgium and Germany. 
Some reached Berlin and Tokyo; one was killed in France. 

One regular nine months course was graduated during the year, and another 
was begun. It was necessary to refuse many applicants for training in the 
treatment of infantile paralysis, some of them under the G.I. Bill, on account of 
the lack of space and facilities. 


Relations with the Nurses' Training School continued mutually beneficial. 
Student nurses received instruction in correct body mechanics, and in massage. 
Physical Therapy students were taught bandaging, the technique of minor dress- 
ings, and the correct procedure of handling patients on the wards, including 
those isolated for communicable disease. 

A new arrangement was made under which two recent graduates rotated 
between the hospital and Wellesley Convalescent Home, while also working in 
the Harvard Infantile Paralysis Clinic. 

Much appreciation is felt for the co-operation and help given to the Physio- 
therapists by the doctors, especially for the instruction furnished the students in 
Orthopedics and Pathology. During the year, 14,702 treatments were given to 
1,293 patients.

FOR the year ended December 31, 1945, sixty-one new patients were admitted 
to the Muscle Training Clinic for treatment. They were diagnosed as follows: 

Brachial Palsy 14 

Cerebral Palsy 41 

Monoplegia 1 

Right Hemiplegia 11 

Left Hemiplegia 9 

Quadriplegia 10 

Extra Pyramidal 5 

Paraplegia 5 

Facial Palsy 2 

Cord Injury 2 

Spina Bifida 2 


A total of 2,785 treatments were given to patients previously admitted. 
Three patients were transferred to the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital because of 



THE year has been a busy one for the Clinics of the Harvard Infantile Paralysis 
Commission. Massachusetts in 1945 reported nearly four per cent of the total 
cases of anterior poliomyelitis in the United States, a greater percentage than 
during any year since 1935. This increase was reflected in the greatly increased 
number of visits both to the Central Clinic and to the weekly treatment clinics 


held in Arlington, Dedham, Haverhill, Lawrence, Lowell, Maiden, Quincy, 
Somerville, and Waltham, and bi-weekly in Beverly. Two hundred and seventy- 
nine new cases were admitted to the Clinics which is over fifty per cent of the 
number of cases reported in Massachusetts during the year. The number of 
visits at the Hospital Clinics exceeded that of 1944 by over 1,200 visits; and there 
was a substantial increase in the number of treatments given in the field. One 
problem which has resulted from this enlarged attendance is the need for more 
space in the Hospital Clinic, or for rearrangement of the existing space in order 
to avoid the crowding which now exists and to allow for a more effective handling 
of patients. 

The activities of a clinic treating infantile paralysis are only partly determined 
by the number of patients who have recently had the disease. Those who have 
had the disease years before, require supervision and treatment for long periods. 
Children in particular, if they have any degree of paralysis, require observation 
at regular intervals throughout the period of growth. Many of the deformities 
arise incident to growth and may be prevented if the patient is observed sufficient- 
ly often to recognize them in their incipiency so that appropriate measures may 
be taken. One of the great advantages of an organization such as this, which is 
concerned with a particular disease, is that a continuity of treatment can be 
evolved and maintained. Many operative procedures for the rehabilitation of a 
given patient must follow a definite time schedule, not only in relation to the 
duration of the disease but more particularly with regard to the age of the patient. 
In the Clinic such a program can be outlined and maintained from the onset of 
the disease until the termination of growth and for as long afterwards as is 

The number of visits for Functional Training in the Arthur T. Legg Memorial 
Room increased in 1945 to more than 1,000. A significant addition to the equip- 
ment of this room during the year was a full scale section of a public bus, which 
was constructed by Mr. Edward Burns of the Electrical Department of the 
Brighton High School with the permission of the Boston School Department, as 
a gift to the Clinic. The expenses incident to its construction were taken care 
of by Noemi No. 11, U. O. T. S., who assisted us in the maintenance of the 
Functional Training Room, as Well as in other activities of the Clinic. This gift 
is proving of great value in the rehabilitation of many patients hitherto confined 
to their homes because their paralytic involvement and consequent lack of self- 
confidence made them unable to use public transportation. 

During the year a closer co-operation between the Chapters of the National 
Foundation for Infantile Paralysis and the Harvard Infantile Paralysis Com- 
mission has been established. The Chapters of Suffolk, Middlesex, Essex and 
Norfolk have been of great financial assistance in the care of patients from their 
respective comities. Over 900 patients from these four counties have been treated 
in the Clinics of the Commission during the year. In addition, the Chapters 
have assisted in the maintenance of certain of the out-lying treatment clinics. 

The Harvard Infantile Paralysis Commission was asked by the National 
Foundation in the spring of 1945 to form one of the Emergency Units set up 
throughout the country to be sent as needed into epidemic areas. The unit, 
which included a physician, two physiotherapists, and an orthopedic nurse, was 


to act as a teaching unit in the designated area. A special grant was received 
from the National Foundation to permit necessary additions in personnel. 
During 1945 the Harvard Unit, although it was not called into the field, was held 
in readiness, and its establishment facilitated the care of the large number of 
patients from our local area. 

Our research activities have been necessarily curtailed during the war. 
However, the long term study of the effects of infantile paralysis upon growth, 
supported by the National Foundation, has been continued. It is only this year 
that growth has been observed sufficiently long to warrant the first publication 
from this Study. Preliminary prediction tables which are used in the equalization 
of growth in the disease have been derived. From the nature of the study which 
is in progress, growth must be followed for a considerable period before results 
can be reported, and the contributions from this Study should follow the law of 
geometric progression. Now that the war is over, research activity in various 
other aspects of the disease is being resumed. In the study of growth we are 
particularly indebted to Miss Margaret Anderson, M.S., who is assisted by Miss 
Ruby Lush. 

The activities of a Clinic such as ours is assisted greatly by the co-operation 
of various agencies and individuals throughout the State. In the Boston area, 
the orthopedic nurses of the Visiting Nurse Association of Boston, under the 
direction of Miss Mary Macdonald, have given 1,578 treatments in the homes 
of our patients during the year. In each community where treatment clinics 
exist we are dependent upon the co-operation of various organizations and in- 
dividuals, just as we are in the transportation of patients to the Clinics. The 
Chapters of the Red Cross should be particularly mentioned in this assistance, 
although many public spirited individuals have assumed this task. 

The personnel of the Clinic is the factor that makes it go. We wish to ex- 
press our indebtedness to the splendid work of Dr. David S. Grice as Assistant 
to the Director throughout the year; to the efficiency of our physiotherapy depart- 
ment under the direction of Miss Janet Merrill, which included Miss M. Leila 
Dwyer, R.P.T., Miss Helen Staats, R.P.T.; Miss Doris Volland, R.P.T.; Mrs. 
Alice F. Droney, R.P.T.; Miss Flora Hall, R.P.T.; Miss Dorothy McManus, 
R.P.T.; Miss Esther Randall, R.P.T.; and Miss Gladys Nelson, R.P.T.; and to 
our secretaries, Miss Jane Johnson and Miss Nancy Wendell. 

This report cannot be ended without expressing our continued indebtedness 
to the Children's Hospital for its direct and indirect assistance during the year.

THE routine work of the Department of Bacteriology proper, as distinguished 
from Clinical Pathology, increased for the year 1945 about twenty-four per cent 
over 1944. A total of 12,583 tests were performed during 1945. Besides the 
well-established bacteriologic techniques, several new ones have been developed 
which bid fair to becoming standard in medical practice. Among them are: 
anti-fibrinolysin titres, mumps complement fixation, sensitivity of organisms to 
penicillin, penicillin levels in blood and other body fluids, and streptomycin titres, 
the last being in the process of perfection. 

The personnel of the Department has been fairly stable, reflecting possibly 
the end of the War and a return to peacetime conditions. For the present, three 
medical students assist the four regular technicians by covering the work of the 
Department at night and on weekends. Their work has been carefully and ef- 
ficiently done, but since such an arrangement entails considerable division of 
responsibility and the training of new students every school year, some arrange- 
ment may be made in the near future whereby the daytime technicians will 
"live in" and alternate on duty at night and on holidays. Housing is one of the 
chief difficulties. 

The Department gains from the fresh point of view and the enthusiasm of 
medical students and house officers. It is to be hoped that, when feasible, prospec- 
tive house officers interested in Bacteriology will spend at least a few months 
assisting in the Department, in routine work and in research, before entering the 
ward services. Now that the pressure of wartime schedules has been somewhat 
relaxed, an effort is being made to bring about a closer liaison between the De- 
partment of Bacteriology of the Harvard Medical School and the Children's 
Hospital, such as was enjoyed several years ago. 

The amount of work done in 1945 by the Laboratory of Clinical Pathology 
more than doubled that of the preceding year, 20,429 tests were completed during 
the year. (This does not include work done by another technician employed 
by the Surgical Department for their wards ). It reflects the load taken off the 
house -officers on the public wards, as well as the tests done on private patients. 
When hospital space permits, a special reception room for private patients 
coming from outside the hospital for certain clinical tests might be advantageously 


arranged. The growing number of practical and relatively simple laboratory 
examinations which can be performed by technicians on ambulatory patients 
from outside practice as well as on those in the hospital, add to the accuracy 
of diagnosis and, if made readily available at relatively inexpensive rates, would 
help raise the standard of practice in the community as a whole.

DURING the year there was a decided increase in the use of photography by 
nearly all departments of the Hospital. New techniques and special routines 
which are useful but time consuming, have been developed. 

The chronic shortages of material, which have plagued us during the war, 
continue in effect. Thus far, we have never run completely out of vital materials, 
with the sole exception of color film. 

A new lens, triple convertible, has been received and is being used for photog- 
raphy in the operating room with considerable success. 

After much deliberation on the post-war medical motion picture situation, 
new equipment was ordered. In view of recent conferences held in this depart- 
ment on future motion picture projects, the early placing of the equipment order 
was timely and necessary. When received, it will replace equipment which has 
been in steady use since 1929, and which has been grossly inadequate for some 
time. Some other equipment has been ordered which will increase the efficiency 
of the department. 

We have continued the policy of allowing individuals interested in medical 
photography to act as observers for a period averaging one month. 

There is a greatly increased interest in visual education and the use of visual 
aids in the medical profession. This department is ready at any time to give 
advice on these matters. There is much material on hand which can be used, 
and the tools, materials and experience are here to produce new teaching aids 
as they are needed. 

During the latter part of the year a series of motion pictures were made for 
the Harvard Infantile Paralysis Commission totaling 5,000 feet. When edited, 
these films will form a number of teaching films. 

The photographer attended the convention of the Biological Photographic 
Association in September, and presented a paper on reproducing X-ray films.

THE Occupational Therapy Department was closed during August and Septem- 
ber when the former Director, Miss Florence A. Fisher, left to join the staff of 
the Colorado Crippled Children's Society in Denver. On October 15th the 
Department was reopened with Mrs. Robert A. Bloomer as its new head. 

In June the Department policy of accepting blanket prescriptions for a ward 
was abolished, and only prescriptions for specific patients, signed by the ward 
physician were accepted for treatment. This change and the closing of the 
Department for two and a half months account for the low number of 628 patients 
treated in 1945 as compared with 1,689 in 1944. However, it should be pointed 
out that these patients received more specific and therefor better treatment than 
the larger numbers in former years. 

Nineteen Boston School of Occupational Therapy students affiliated in the 
Department during the year. With the aid of these students and volunteers, 
the Department was able to successfully treat all prescription cases and to 
maintain the library service for ward patients. They were ably assisted by 
twenty-two volunteers who gave 1,261 hours of fine service, preparing projects 
and working with ward patients under supervision, handling all of the out- 
patient clinic diversional activities and taking the library cart to the wards. 
The library circulation for the year was 1,976, with many new books being added 
to the shelves. 


Organized rounds with the ward physician were started for the members of 
the Occupational Therapy Department and the medical Social Service workers 
to discuss cases and pick up prescriptions. This method was very successful and 
it is sincerely hoped that this can be done with the other services. Lectures to 
the student and affiliating nurses on occupational therapy in a pediatric hospital 
were given as formerly. 

Since October we have tried to establish the policy of contacting only pre- 
scription cases, as it is impossible for one occupational therapist and two students 
(who are required to attend clinics and lectures as part of their training) to work 
with more than a case load of approximately thirty patients daily. This number 
includes ward and shop cases, the latter being encouraged for ambulatory patients. 
For the many other children who need occupational therapy and cannot be seen 
by our limited staff, there are volunteers who do diversional work on the wards. 
This is not a prescription program carried out by a professional group, but it 
serves a vital need for these patients. 

The case load of functional exercise cases has increased during the year from 
zero to three, which this Department hails as an indication that more phases of 
occupational therapy may be utilized than heretofor. 

The Department deeply appreciates the whole-hearted support of the Wo- 
men's Welfare Committee and the Volunteers, who under the able Chairmanship 
of Mrs. H. Parker Wittington have made our task so enjoyable. 

Director of Occupational Therapy 


THE Social Service Department reports for 1945 a continuation of individual 
service to 1,789 children. The year may be characterized as one having few 
innovations; marked chiefly by the determination to maintain existing commit- 
ments in spite of complications, especially shortages in staff. 

This shortage and turnover of personnel occurred principally on the Ortho- 
pedic and Surgical Services. In October, Miss Kathleen Scott, social worker for 
the Orthopedic Service, resigned to join the staff of the Family Society of Boston. 
This vacancy has not been filled permanently, because no qualified full time social 
worker has been available. Mrs. Ruth Murphy, a graduate of the Simmons 
College School of Social Work and a recent member of the Social Service Depart- 
ment of the Massachusetts Memorial Hospitals, who joined our staff in Septem- 
ber, has covered the service three days a week with the director filling in as 
necessary. The Surgical Service was without a regular worker until September 
when Miss Angela Giampapa, a graduate of the Boston College School of Social 
Work with two years experience in the Home Service of the Boston Chapter 
of the American Red Cross, was appointed. Previously, two temporary workers 
had filled in; Miss Rosemary Crawford, formerly Director of Social Service at 
the White Plains Hospital, New York, from January through June, and Miss 
Jane Harley, a student at Simmons College School of Social Work for July and 
August. In recent years two social workers, one half-time, have been assigned 


to the Medical Out-Patient Department. This year Miss Bryant alone carried 
the load with whatever sporadic help other members of the staff could give her. 

Because of the scarcity of medical social workers which our situation so 
clearly brought home to us, we have undertaken the responsibility of giving field 
work placements to as many students as our depleted staff could train. During 
the course of the year, Miss Manon McGinnis has had five students, three from 
Boston University School of Social Work and two from the Boston College 
School of Social Work. In addition, Miss Emma Lou Mason has been responsible 
for a student from the Boston College School. Still another student came to 
us from the Simmons College School for five weeks in the summer for general 
experience and orientation to the hospital. One of these students from the 
Boston College School of Social Work, Miss Virginia Fair, wrote a thesis for her 
Master's degree on "Social Treatment in Eight Cases of Esophageal Atresia." 
We have continued our association with the Simmons College School of Nursing 
and have had three students from their Public Health Nursing Course come to 
us for a month each to observe and acquaint themselves with medical social 
work. The usual course of ten hours has been given twice during the year to 
our student nurses. For our own staff education, we joined with some of our 
graduate nurses in a series of meetings conducted by Dr. Marian Putnam of the 
Children's Center. A few outside nurses and social workers from other hospital 
pediatric units were also invited. 

The end of the war removed a few irksome duties without modifying our 
general situation as to bulk of work, type of cases, or department organization. 
The routines of obtaining additional gas coupons for clinic visits and shoe stamps 
for orthopedic shoes happily became unnecessary. However, transportation 
still continued a problem for those patients without cars who have depended on 
the Red Cross Motor Corps to make clinic visits. This service has had to be 
greatly curtailed by the Red Cross Chapters because of their obligations to the 
Army and Navy with the result that our taxi fund has been heavily drained. In 
spite of more available gas in the fall, our own home visiting continued at a re- 
duced rate due to the increasing chronic maladies and unreliability of the aging 
hospital car. 

This lesser mobility may have encouraged on our part increasing dependence 
and closer co-operation with local social and health resources in outlying com- 
munities as well as with social workers and nurses in State Public Health Pro- 
grams. Joint planning and local responsibility for supervision and help has been 
advantageous to those patients coming from a distance, and we hope to continue 
this trend. Especially have we relied on the personnel of the Massachusetts 
Public Health Department and on the Departments of Maine, New Hampshire 
and Vermont. 

With financial help from the Hood and Hayden Foundations and from the 
Committee of the Permanent Charity Fund Incorporated, we have been able to 
continue an extensive summer camp placement program. One hundred and 
twenty-four (124) boys and girls were sent to camp at a total cost from these funds 
of $2,719.63 plus the $1,275.41 which the parents contributed. 

Come war or peace, the disposition of feeble-minded children remains a major 
problem, as well as the placement of those requiring nursing care because of 


hopeless medical conditions. These children, left indefinitely in their own 
homes, often cause serious social and emotional problems, unsoluble because of 
the lack of community resources. 

We have made a one hundred per cent contact with all families of patients 
having diabetes and a social review for all patients entering the Orthopedic 
Wards. In addition, most all the cases of poliomyelitis on the wards have had 
social evaluation including home visit to determine the ability of family and child 
to carry out necessary treatment upon discharge. With these exceptions, our 
policy has been, as formerly, to rely largely on the medical staff for our referrals. 

We have missed the moral support and intelligent guidance of the Socia 
Service Advisory Committee which has been inactive during this past year and 
since his retirement in July the understanding interest and practical help which 
Mr. Meyer has always given the department. We are aware of the continuation 
of this assistance on the part of the other admiuistrative offices both old and 
new and are grateful for the co-operation of the nursing and medical staffs. 
Over a period of time we have come to count on this continuing support, but this 
year especially we have appreciated their forbearance and help.

Probability of success in nursing is determined by the scholastic and aptitude 
tests in which all candidates rated as excellent, very good or good. No candidates 
were rejected. 

Graduation exercises were held on June 6, 1945 with Dr. Bancroft Beatley, 
President, Simmons College, and Chairman of The Children's Hospital School 
of Nursing Committee, as the speaker. The graduating class this year was the 
largest in the history of The Children's Hospital School of Nursing. One member 
of the class withdrew after the graduation exercises to be married. 

The total number of students who entered in the three sections of the Class 
of 1945 was fifty-eight. There was a twenty-seven per cent loss in the three 
years, which is slightly below the average for schools of nursing in normal times. 

The distribution of the forty- two who graduated at this time is as follows : 

Army 6 

Married 5 

Enrolled in Public Health Nursing Course 1 

The Children's Hospital 21 

Working in home communities out of state 5 

Working in New Bedford, Oxford and Cambridge, Mass 3 

Returned to Smith College 1 

This was the first class to graduate, all of whose time in The Children's 
Hospital was under wartime conditions with all of its attendant difficulties and 
tenseness, and its members accepted the added responsibilities and the limitations 
which the conditions occasioned with fine spirit and with loyal support of the 
School's faculty. This has been characteristic of the student body and graduate 
staff during all of these trying years. 

The affiliations completed by The Children's Hospital students during the 
year were as follows: 

Massachusetts General Hospital 6 

Peter Bent Brigham Hospital 35 

Boston Lying-in Hospital 41 

McLean Hospital 37 

Simmons College (Public Health Course) .... 12 

During the year thirty-four students became Senior Cadets and for the six 
months' Senior Cadet Period the distribution was as follows: 

The Children's Hospital 19 

Army Hospitals 10 

Naval Hospitals 2 

Public Health 3 


The last class of Cadet Nurses was entered in September. Of the 127 stu- 
dents in the School, 113 are Cadets. For the year ending June 30, 1946, the 
budget appropriation for the Cadet program from the United States Public 
Health Service is $57,526.80. 

The influence of The Children's Hospital in relation to pediatric nursing 
continues with many groups. During the year the following number of affiliat- 
ing students from the designated schools completed the three months' course: 

Peter Bent Brigham Hospital 55 

New England Deaconess Hospital 50 

New England Baptist Hospital 38 

Faulkner Hospital 31 

Beth Israel Hospital 50 

Eastern Maine General Hospital 34 

Beverly Hospital 20 

Salem Hospital 29 

Truesdale Hospital 31 

Newton-Wellesley Hospital 42 

Melrose Hospital 29

During the year we received, at the request of the International Council of 
Nurses, a graduate nurse from Iceland for basic teaching in pediatric nursing, 
since this is not included in the curriculum of schools of nursing in that country. 
Two Chinese nurses were sent by the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation 
Administration for several days' observation. A graduate nurse from Mexico 
also spent a period of four months here and returned for an important position 
in The Children's Hospital in Mexico City. 

The post-graduate course in Advanced Clinical Practice in Pediatrics, in 
which we co-operate with Boston University, has been revised. The proposed 
post-graduate course in orthopedics, which was scheduled for September at 
Boston University and in which we were to participate was postponed to the 
spring of 1946. 

There is urgent need throughout this country for well-prepared head nurses, 
supervisors and clinical instructors in pediatric nursing, and both the United 
States Public Health Service and the Children's Bureau have directed attention 
to this fact. The Children's Bureau, especially, has been much interested in this 
course for graduate nurses. There are far-reaching governmental programs in 
the field of pediatrics which cannot go forward without skilled pediatric nurses. 
The post-graduate work needs further development. 

As in each of the war years, there have been changes in the graduate staff. 
We were fortunate, however, in having a relatively stable faculty. Most changes 
have been in the general staff and head nurse groups, and were for military service 
or marriage. In spite of the difficulties under which they were working the mem- 


bers of the faculty have been able to maintain a well-rounded program and to do 
some constructive work on faculty policies and on ward teaching programs. 

On the recommendation of the School of Nursing Committee the Board of 
Trustees voted to change the title of the Superintendent of Nurses and Principal 
of the School to Director of the School and Nursing Service, the Assistant Princi- 
pal to Associate Director of the School, and the titles of other assistants to be in 
accord with that of the Director. 

In September we opened a new house on Binney Street for graduate nurses. 
While the graduates who reside there in one sense "live in," it presents many 
of the same opportunities as "living out" does. This increase in housing took 
care of the emergency situation this year which we dealt with last year by putting 
student nurses temporarily in the penthouse, and using double decker beds in 
the sitting rooms, neither of which were desirable practices. More housing for 
students and graduates is necessary. If Gardner House is enlarged, considera- 
tion should be given to relocating the Nursing Arts Classroom, and enlargement 
of the library. Should the Nurses' Infirmary be returned to Gardner House, 
consideration should be given to its relocation. 

During the year there have been helpful changes in personnel policies which 
effect the nurses as well as other employees. There is still room, however, for 
improvement in hours which only await the time when we can have sufficient 
people to cut hours and give adequate care to patients. 

In view of the impending building program and the program for strengthen- 
ing and enlarging the scope of activities at The Children's Hospital, the Director 
of the School made two reports to the School of Nursing Committee as a basis 
for discussion as to the place of the School in the proposed program. As it seemed 
helpful to have the viewpoint of a person outside the organization, the Director 
of the School recommended that a study be made by a person who was familiar 
with the history and trends of nursing education, and the Board of Trustees 
authorized the School of Nursing Committee to invite Miss Helen Wood of the 
Simmons College School of Nursing to make such a study. This report will be 
presented to the School of Nursing Committee early in 1946. The future program 
of The Children's Hospital has many implications for nursing and nursing edu- 

Our war record shows that 141 graduates of this School were in military 
service. This number represents just over twenty per cent of all graduates of the 
last twenty years, but a very much larger per cent of those in that group who were 
eligible for military service. The figures show that thirty-one per cent of the 
graduates of the last twenty years are married, many of them with children and 
therefore ineligible for military service. 

During the past year the census of the Hospital has been higher than at any 
time in its history even though one ward was closed for several months in order 
to make necessary renovations. In spite of the general nursing shortage which 
has prevailed, at no time have we closed a ward for this reason. The Private 
Ward Operating Room was closed but several other factors entered into this de- 

Before the war the number of general staff nurses or general duty nurses 
was thirty-nine. Never during the past year have we had the number of nurses 


of this grade previously assigned to Private Ward alone. Service needs for the 
entire Hospital had to be made up by part-time personnel and student nurses. 
It takes a lot of part-time people to make up the fifty-one hours weekly of twenty 
to twenty-five people. 

Other types of service which in normal times was performed by other per- 
sonnel became an added burden when that service had to be rendered by nurses. 
Although we have had more student nurses, it is not the same as a stabilized 
graduate staff, for more student nurses mean more teaching and supervision 
and frequent rotation. The all-year program for medical education has also 
affected the nursing service. Good nursing service is needed for patients and is a 
necessary complement to good medical education, and good nursing service is 
the out-growth of a good program in nursing education. 

There seems to be an increasing trend in the Hospital to have many more 
patients who require "constant care" following operation. When special duty 
nurses are not available, this care must be delegated either to graduates on the 
staff or to student nurses. The use of penicillin with its frequent administration 
by hypodermic is a striking example of a time-consuming treatment which is 
required in the Hospital today. To give the amount and quality of nursing care 
necessary will mean a material increase in staff nurses. 

During the last quarter of the year a decrease in affiliating students became 
apparent and the figures for the next year show definitely the losses which are 
taking place in schools of nursing with the close of the war and the termination 
of the Cadet Program. The large increase in the number of affiliating students 
at The Children's Hospital was a war measure. With the expansion of the 
Hospital in view, it would seem advisable to continue with a large number of 
affiliating students, but the graduate nurse staff should be restored and increased. 
As soon as possible we should return to staffing the Private Ward almost entirely 
with graduate nurses, supplemented by student nurses and licensed attendants, 
the proportion of each group to be compatible with service needs, economy and 
the satisfaction of patients and physicians. 

The end of the year still finds us with vacancies in our graduate staff, in 
ward helpers and in other hospital personnel, but anyone who reads the daily 
newspapers and is objective in his thinking, knows that we are not alone in our 
misery. While the next few months may bring more help, we shall lose present 
members of the staff. Some of those who stayed during the war are now restless; 
husbands and fiances have returned and personal problems are making resigna- 
tions necessary. Nurses who are returning from overseas are not returning to 
work immediately. Under the G.I. Bill of Rights they may have at least a year 
of study and many of them are planning to avail themselves of this opportunity 
for post-graduate work. 

One cannot close this report without expressing deep appreciation of the 
loyal spirit in which graduate and student nurses alike accepted the added 
responsibilities and met the demands made upon them during all of the war 

We appreciate greatly, also, the contribution which has been made by the 
graduates of this and other schools who came in for part-time work. The volun- 
teer service, which has been given both by the Red Cross Nurse's Aides and by 


the War Service Committee, has been efficient and effective, and we are grateful 
to each volunteer, including members of the corps of men who came to Gardner 
House and helped in its up-keep.

* Elected 1945 
x Resigned 


IN April, 1920, a number of children of Greater Boston finding that they were 
needed, eagerly enlisted and formed into clubs. The title given, "C. H." was 
taken from the initials of The Children's Hospital and because of the earnest 
and hearty co-operation and response of well children who helped to bring 
cheerfulness and health to the little patient. 



If $100 is made (not begged) by any club, or group of small clubs, a bed is 
named in the hospital for one year. In years past, a neatly-framed name card 
was hung on the foot of that bed inscribed with the name of the club and where 
located. Now the name and locality of the club is inscribed on a chart that hangs 
in the nurses' station of the ward. If any club raises more than $100 they can 
name one bed for each additional $100. Some of the clubs raise as much as 


THE year of 1945 opened with many emergency calls for help, particularly from 
the laundry and housekeeping departments. We were usually able to supply 
these demands. One group of men worked in the laundry one night a week, 
which materially alleviated the shortage in that department. 

In spite of the many demands on their time, the volunteers continued to 
come faithfully through the spring, with the usual number dropping out in May 
and June to be replaced for the summer with college and school girls. 

In April, a group of business girls from a local bank started as an evening 
group one night a week and faithfully did a great deal of sewing, linen work and 

Later in the spring, a plaque honoring those who had given five hundred 
hours of service was placed in the main lobby. New names have been added 
from time to time. 

A plea to our volunteers to stand with us at the end of the war, until normal 
peacetime conditions returned received heroic response. Many, however, had 
to leave, as their family responsibilities increased and their home duties oc- 
cupied more of their time. Such jobs as laundry folding and housekeeping began 
to be less popular and the number of new volunteers, in comparison to previous 
years, dropped off, although many of the regular people with long standing inter- 
est in the hospital, continued in the vital jobs. 

The nearby colleges and schools were most co-operative in answering our 
calls for help. The Bouve School sent twenty girls in October, who were willing 
workers and have been coming faithfully. 

With the advent of new polio cases in the fall, we were asked for help in the 
pool and we were able to supply one girl each afternoon to help prepare patients 
for treatment. 

One group of men volunteers was forced to give up at the close of the war 
due to added burdens of their own business and for various other reasons. The 
other group of men still continues one night a week during this emergency 

Tours of the Hospital were offered volunteers during the month of November 
and will be given any time upon request. 

The delightful Christmas tea, given to the volunteers by the Welfare Com - 
mittee and Ladies' Aid, was very much enjoyed by all. 

The increasing activity in and reorganization of the out-patient department, 
brought about by the return of many of the doctors is making new and greater 


demands on the volunteer service. A more exacting type of service is required 
and a wonderful opportunity is afforded one who would like to give a real contri- 
bution to the physical well-being of the community and the efficiency of the 
Hospital. Volunteer jobs are becoming more technical and require more train- 
ing and supervision. More time per week is needed for some of these jobs. 
We hope that with the development of the wonderful plans for the Medical Center 
and the progress of medical science, the Volunteer will continue to be an esteemed 
and valuable adjunct to the profession of medicine and the hospital.
